Ok, I’m so sorry I haven’t posted in a million years!! I’ve literally been so busy because of exams (ahhh!!!) so I haven’t had time to cook anything exciting! I had an abundance of zucchini the other day so decided to make these as I side dish, even though they’re quite summery… Whoops…

These grilled zucchini may seem simple but they are delicious, you’re really able to taste the true flavours of the zucchini and you get tang from the lemon zest.
Perfect for a side to a hearty chargrilled steak or with some fish.
You could even shave the zucchini into ribbons and use them in a salad, use all the ingredients but don’t cook them!
